Use Case Overview

This use case guide is for covers how to setup Player Retention Target measurement using Gamesight. This guide is applicable to all games, independent of the platform.

A Player Retention Target goal measures when a player is retained for at least a certain amount of time in-game. For example, you would use a Player Retention goal if you want to measure the number of users who are retained for at least 1 day from your campaign. This is particularly useful if you would like to post back retention-based Goals to Ad Networks for optimization.

Note that this Goal configuration is separate from our default LTV reports. Just by sending a game launch event, Gamesight will automatically generate reporting to show the retention of users by cohorted acquisition source.

Measurement Setup

Player Retention measurement is based on the same game launch event that powers the Install Measurement goal. So for most games, you get retention measurement for "free" with the base attribution integration.

You can read more about how to set up the game launch event integration in the Measurement API Quick Start guide.
